Jobs opportunities in the Middle East have always been very lucrative. Dubai in The United Arab Emirates has been the biggest magnet, attracting skilled, semi-skilled & unskilled talent. However, you, as yet have to achieve your dream job in the Gulf, that comes with the higher position, status, and of course, a better salary.
What can you do to change this?
Begin with a professional & well-formatted Resume.
A resume is a very important factor in an interview. Whether you get an interview call or not, rests upon your Resume. A well-written resume shows your enthusiasm & your commitment to work in a competitive environment.
Imagine a Human Resources (HRD) Manager having to search from scores of Resumes that he’s received for an open job position in his company. Which candidate should he select for an interview and which one should he reject? That is just one of his work responsibilities. And also quite problematic. From the tight time schedules he has, do you think he goes through each and every C.V. from top to bottom?
What do you think he does?
He simply scans every Resume, selecting the ones that he likes & discarding those he doesn’t.
Now, let us look from a candidate’s angle. Suppose, you are the candidate. You have excellent skills, are enthusiastic, motivated & talented. You know you can easily qualify for the higher position and bigger salary packet. You’ve sent in your Resume, and are waiting to be called for an interview. Deep down, you just know that if given a chance to an interview, you’ll easily impress the interviewer. This job will be yours. But you know what? You do not get an interview call.
Why? Are you lacking in skills? – Not at all.
